Vivo cantando - Salomé

Salomé was born as Maria Rosa Marco on June 21, 1943 in Barcelona, Spain. She found international fame in 1969 when she represented Spain during the Eurovision Song Contest with the song 'Vivo cantando' ('I live singing'). Two memorable aspects of the performance were Salomé's costume – a pantsuit covered in long strands of porcelain resembling beads – and the fact that the singer chose to dance on the spot during certain parts of the song.

The song ended up winning the contest in a tie with three other songs: United Kingdom's 'Boom Bang-a-Bang' performed by Lulu, 'De troubadour' by Lenny Kuhr representing the Netherlands, and 'Un jour, un enfant' sung for France by Frida Boccara. From these countries, only Spain never managed to win again after 1969.
